Yes, all DVDs are interlaced - they can store 23.976 information as progressive (if it's progressive) and then add pulldown to become 30i.

[Ralph Parker] "If I were to convert the project sequences to progressive, (for learning's sake), by using the mentioned settings, would that give my video a softer "film look" as opposed to the harsh, stark video look?"

Yeah, um. No.

You want a film look? Shoot film.
Film 'looks' are 3 things:
Frame rate, short Depth of Field, S curve color correction.

You'll do better to:
Get Magic bullet or other sort of 'filmic' response.
If you didn't shoot with a good looking DOF, try to build it.
Not worry about interlacing/24- The 24p look is the least of the three to 'feel' filmic.

Best,
